They've price matched Play.com. Fair deal for these headphones, but they have been down to £11.99 recently.

they look a lovely gift tho - heat added

got these a few weeks ago for same price pretty decent for the money!

No bass on these , ordered PXC-250 II instead £92

These are always around this price or lower but are still excellent headphones for the price, plenty of bass.

Are these the best headphones you can get in this price-range?

I can't see them being worth the extra £78.

hi i know this is off topic but does anyone know any good headsets for with the max price range being 20.

hd202's are £17.99 on play but not sure what the difference is. link

Looks a good deal for headphones up to £20

the HD201 are bass light and are better sound quality than the HD202... while the HD202 is bass heavy and lower sound quality than the HD201

I want a pair for exclusively watching movies (don't care how they perform with music really) on my laptop, would like ones that nobody else in the room can hear annoying noise from. Any ideas people?

I have tried a lot of budget headphones but find these the best value for money....the sound is lovely and clear, no cheap tinniness and comfy to wear... thumbs up from me

I only use these for watching movies and they are fine for me, also, being closed backed, helps keep stray noise down, I use headphone a lot and used to spend £40-50 but got fed up with the short lifespan they seem to have, my previous Goldrings lasted 6 months.

anyone know of any decent cordless headphones under £40? obviously the cheaper the better, thanks!

HD202's have better bass and noise cancellation which the 201's do not.

Main flaw with 202 is bass leaks into midrange a bit, but for the price you can't beat them, incredible headphones.

Then this one is suitable for you.

Thanks s123456

Would these be suitable for a (high end) keyboard player? Thanks

Does anyone know how long the cable is? I need a set with at least 2m.

These were actually 1 pound cheaper over the last couple of weeks. I was going to ask in the HD202 thread if these were any good. Thanks for the comparisons so far.
The 202s are now down in price with Amazon, they were around £22 last couple of weeks, theyve matched play.com with those.

Thanks s123456

ur welcome

I second the comment on the bass. It's pretty much NON-EXISTENT. But don't get me wrong, for the price it is an okay purchase. I actually ended getting two of these a while back at £9.99. I bought it from eBay, and seller sent me two items, to my surprise of course. Sent the other one back, and it came back to me two weeks later. Oh well, I tried!

If any of you have any of those current generation Apple white earphones, here's a tip which you'll love: Use ear foams on them. You know, those black thin foam like things to cover them. You'd be surprised by the increase in quality, bass, and overall experience just by simply using the foam with the Apple earphones. And you can buy genuine remote-less versions for less than £5 on the bay. Ear foams are aplenty there as well, with different colours to choose from.

I hope someone finds this information useful.

How do these compare to the Sony MDR-XD200



Depends on your listening preferences. If you want a richer sound go for the Sonys, as the Sennheisers have a rather washed out sound, bit like comparing the sound of a turntable to that of a CD player, you know the CD player should sound superior but the turntable gives more pleasure (IMO) due to having a 'fuller' sound.

HD201 vs HD202?!

It will be for listening to rock and playing guitar...

Would these be suitable for a (high end) keyboard player? Thanks



Im also interested in views on this - considering the 201s or 202s at the moment but happy to pay a bit more if its worth it - only looking at these two because I have heard such good things about them



Rock has a lot going on in the mid-range for which I'd opt for the 201's as the 202's are very heavy on bass, to the point of sounding muddy. Great for music that concentrates on the lower frequencies like dubstep, hip-hop, jungle, reggae etc. For the guitar I'd again favor the 201's simply for the cleaner sound.

If the choice was simply between those two models then I'd go for the 201's as they have a more balanced sound.

I bought a pair of these a while back to replace my broken PX100's. They're very poor in comparison (no bass at all, quite uncomfortable), and I'll be buying another set of PX100's shortly for £29.95.

Similar price @ play and HMV.
I really want these, but I hate the fact that they no longer come with a hard case, like the old ones.

Had these for about 18 months, they come in totally different packaging, … Had these for about 18 months, they come in totally different packaging, anyway they are absolute crap, music has no depth as is very tinny, bass is not existent, I only use them if I have no other option, would strongly avoid and buy something else.



213 five star reviews on Amazon, so I think you are in a minority. For the price you simply won't get better headphones. Bass is fine and rounded, not overblown like other makes.

are these comfy enough to wear for an hour ata time.
that involves walking and being on trains lols

I Have to warn you good price or not these are terrible terrible headphones, extremely quiet and poor quality sound

the sony mdr xd200 are much better in my opinion and can take a beating as well, a deal was posted on here yesterday for £13.99 so i bought a second pair well worth the money.

For the price, you won't find anything much better than these. I pondered over buying them but got the HD238 as the massive cable on these is meant for home use, not portability. I've used hifi headphones on the go before and having the cable coiled up with an elastic band gets pretty annoying.

I need something to use whilst traveling on aircraft - i.e. cutting down on background noise.
Would these be suitable or is there something more suitable for noisy aircraft under 20 pounds?
Thanks
